Miracle Fortress - Maybe Lately

Miracle Fortress - Here's To Feeling Good All The Time

With my attention elsewhere, it's been a hot minute — or maybe three years — since I'd thought about Graham Van Pelt's Miracle Fortress. Turns out there's no new album yet, but he has dropped a trio of new tunes online. It sounds like the newer stuff is moving away from the fascination with Remain in Light-style sonics that marked 2011's Was I the Wave?, but the older one (which gets a lot of mileage from a mild "Don't Worry baby" melodic crib and a hint of "Under Pressure"'s bassline) and newer one here are bonded with an extended outro for the former and intro for the latter that match up nicely.

[Miracle Fortress will be playing a Platform gig alongside Ken Park at Mercer Union on Thursday, February 5th.]
